I looked at the TomTom cardio runner mainly because I didn't fancy a heart rate strap but wanted the heart rate data and training.
in the end I decided that I didn't want to spend £200 on a running watch and got a garmin 610 on sale for £130 instead.
I have to say I really don't notice that I have the heart rate strap on and it doesn't move about at all.
Very happy with my new garmin and the transfer from my 610 to garmin connect and strava is instant, as soon as I put the watch next to my pc
I'm not sure that's it's a good idea to change both trainers and running form just three weeks before your first marathon, covering a maximum of 8km on new trainers and new form is not ideal preparation.
What do you think to the 610 alex?
Got mine, seems like a good price, looking forward to it arriving next week.
Thanks for the heads up spammer.
I'm looking for a new watch so I will take a look at this - my amazon site says it goes on sale from 7pm??
I'm tempted by the TomTom but having always been a garmin user I'm probably going to stick with them.
I can't decide if it's worth going for the newer 220 or if I'm just paying more for features that I won't really use - the 610 may be a good option
